About 8 months ago we moved to the Sunshine Coast and we love it!  We have fallen in love with this beautiful area and we couldn't be happier.  For the past eights months however we have been working out of our kitchen/dining room as this house just isn't big enough to accommodate my business Mum & Me Handmade Designs.  Every meal time I had to pack away everything which obviously wasn't ideal.

So 6 months ago we bought an old shipping container and my lovely partner has converted this into our new home studio.  Of course there were a few delays with finding time to complete this project so finally we have moved in - WOOHOO!!

Here are the BEFORE photos:-

And this is NOW.  It still needs a bit of love and some landscaping and hopefully we will have this completed by June.

And now we have moved in! Yay :-)  It was really important for us to be able to have ample cupboards and shelving for all our supplies.

Office Space

I'm loving my new peg board and it's great having so much cupboard space.

This is where I pack all my orders. And of course we need somewhere to put the beer and wine:-

Once we have completely finished the final touches on our new office space I will share some more photos and hopefully a little video that I will eventually add to my Etsy About Page.

Until next time,

It's been such a long time since I have touched this blog.  Actually it's been over a year and a half :-( Updating my blog has been on my to-do list for many months now and finally I am here and I have so much to share with you.

I have just finished rebranding Mum & Me Handmade Designs.  This was another job on my to-do list which was on that list for a very long time.    So finally have a new logo which I love and I've updated all my banners with blush, gold and white accents.  This logo makes me smile and I feel a sense of relief that I am going in the right direction with how I want my website and social media to look and feel.  It's always scary changing your branding and this time it feels so right.

I have also just moved into new Home Office which is a Converted Shipping Container.   I have moved in but there are still a few jobs to finish so I will be sharing some photos hopefully over the next month or 2.  I can't wait to show you!  Here is a little sneak peek of my new peg board:-

Anyway I still have lots more to share with you.  My plan is to post twice a week here.  So I look forward to sharing some many more pics next time.

Until then :-)
